Gion Festival yoiyoiyama (Kyoto Japan)
Naginata-Hoko float
The Naginata Hoko float leads the procession of the Hoko and Yama floats. The order of the floats is decided by drawing lots, however the Naginata Hoko float is an exception and has been privileged to head the procession. The name Naginata is derived from the great halberd crowning the float, made by Sanjo-Kokaji-Munechika, a master of sword smithing during the Heian period (794-1185). The replica is being used now.
